Uncle Simon’s reaction:

Simon Cowell @SimonCowell
Fantastic news. Congrats @onedirection I am very proud of you. @TheXFactor @BRIT_Awards

One Direction, JLS, Olly Murs, Little Mix, Marcus Collins, Cher Lloyd and Alexandra Burke represented the X Factor on the red carpet. Olly Murs also performed. Daily Mail has pictures from the red carpet and recap of the show.

I fully expect HQ videos of all performances to appear on “The Brit Awards” YouTube Channel sooner or later.

But, until then:
